Reserve Shooter or Shotgun for Gas Jockey Pyro?

So yeah, like the title asks, which shotgun do you prefer with the Gas Jockey set?

I'm having some trouble deciding between the two. I like the Reserve Shooter because it gives me the ability to do some burst damage with the loss of the Axtinguisher, but I find that I empty the clip quite frequently and spend a lot of time reloading.

Unless you are very good with shotty i would go to stock shotgun. those extra 3 shots sure do help lot more than possible +35% damage most of time.

Flaregun since you lack the crit damage of the Axe, I think it works best IMO.

Shotgun. You should try to do combos when opportunity presents, but you should never plan to do it.

The Reserve Shooter is 1000 times more fun.

If you have learned the wonderful art of CB-people-in-corners-and-meatshot-them. Then use reserve shooter. If not use the normal shotgun.

Amateur! The best thing is ambushing then finishing them with the fire axe (default). Now you can proceed and use the Schadenfreude taunt.

I like the stock shotty. The reserve shooter is fun, but i find the crit mechanics are a bit glitchy. Also, to all of you flare punchers, the gas jockey already puts you at a disadvantage against shotgun wielding pyros, and carrying the flaregun tilts it even more in their favor.

shotgun pyro counters a flare pyro without the gas jockey set regardless

I´d say Shotgun. Not that RS is bad weapon but sometimes those minicrits feel kinda bugged a.k.a 10 damage minicrit meatshot. Stock feels just more reliable and those +3 shots help a lot.

SHOTGUN. NO NEED FOR MINI-CRITS WHEN YOU ALREADY INSTAKILL SCOUTS.
